    Will vag-com on audi tt 2001 work on my 2006 A3 TDI

    Hi, dont laugh if this is a stupid question but i know nothing about this stuff at all.....

    My mate has vag-com, connection cable and laptop and uses the software on his 2001 Audi TT.
    Would he be able to plug this into my 2006 A3 S-line 2.0 TDI to make some changes to my car.
    I want to get the car to beep when you use the key fob to lock/unlock the car. Have heard this can be done but you need vag-com to do it.

    Does this make any sense or am i asking a stupid question ?

    Cheers in advance.....

    It depends on what cable he has. A 2001 TT only requires K-Line diagnostics where-as your A3 will require Canbus diagnostics (different protocols).

    Ask him to check what cable he has and post it here for further advice.

    I think that cable is an aftermarket cable that does not support the CAN diagnostics. To work on your car, you would need a HEX series interface or a Micro-CAN interface from Ross-Tech. There are no aftermarket cables that are compatible with VAG-COM and that have CAN diagnostic capability.

    A list of compatible interfaces to your A3 can be found here.

    http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/car...ions/a3s3.html

    You can either buy from us directly or from one of our distributors. Keep in mind that you may need to pay taxes etc. when importing from outside your country.
